Koh Sirey (also spelled Koh Sire, Koh Siray) is a medium size island off the southeast coast of Phuket, just south of Phuket Town, which is connected to the main island by a short bridge on Srisuthat Road. This island is directly south of Coconut Island.
Koh Sirey is bigger than most islands surrounding Phuket, at 5.7 kilometers (3.5 miles) from top to bottom and 3.5 kilometers (2 miles) at its widest point.
Though mostly covered by trees and plantations, there are quite a few housing complexes here, and it has a cozy neighborhood feel to it. There are some beaches, but they are not as picturesque as some of Phuket’s other amazing beaches. There are private resorts and villas on the east coast of Koh Sire, in the 3,000 Thai Baht range.
If you’re here at this island, you might stop in at Wat Koh Sirey, a Theravada Buddhist temple on the south side of the island.
If you need a place to stay on Koh Sirey, you will probably enjoy the Westin Siray Bay Resort & Spa Phuket on the isthmus at the end of the southernmost part of the island. This is a 5-star resort with 250+ reviews averaging 4.5 out of 5 on Google. That’s a very high rating for so many reviewers. The resort faces west and probably has the nicest sand and beach area of the island.
If you do stay at one of the resorts on the island, you could stop at the Phuket Thai Cookery for some classes. They teach how to cook Thai food in authentic Thai style. They teach seven different courses, each one a different day. Cost is generally 2,900 Thai Baht. Many reviewers remarked that Chef James (Thai) was quite enjoyable as an instructor for the course.
